The WW2 Army Cookbook
This cookbook and its successor, the 1942 edtion, were the primary cookbooks used by the Army in World War 2. TM10-412 Recipes did not come out until the end of August of 1944, and very likely did not reach units until late 1944 and into 1945. This is the one the cooks would have been using for almost all of World War 2.
